  • Octoberfest Offerings Are Great
    ShelDeb
    Dined on 10/10/2014
    We dine at Bracco fairly often, but seek out the Octoberfest / German meal offerings this time of year. We started out with 2 varieties of Octoberfest beers, followed by German Fare, which was great. The kids split the fondue platter, which is actually mini corn dogs, chicken strips and smiley fries with dipping ketchup, bbq sauce & cheese sauce.

    My group met for a group meeting, we started in the dining area but were too cold so we were able to switch to the bar area. It was still cold, but manageable. We had to change servers, which was fine. At the end, we all had separate checks and in mine I paid over the amount with change so I could get a $10 bill back and not change. When she brought it back she disregarded the change I had in there and gave me one's and five. After I showed her that she said "Opps, I must not have seen the quarter!" and walked away.

    We always enjoy dining at Broccos. The only negative complaint we have is the server always brings our bill without asking us if we would like an after dinner drink. Sooooooooooo, we pay for our dinner and go over to the bar for a drink. We almost feel like we are being rushed to leave the dining room. It would be better to relax at our booth and enjoy an after dinner drink. Otherwise Braccos is a great place to dine.

    We saw a couple check in right before us and they had to wait while we had just made an Open Table reservation on our way there and got seated right away! My seafood enchilada was great but my wife did not really enjoy her lettuce wraps. The kids got their usuals off of the kids menu and ate away. Usually a great experience at Bracco foodwise, but this time would stop at very good. The service made up for it, as well as the cold beers.

  • Mother's Day - Worst Service Ever
    nogood
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    We have visited Bracco for years on Mother's Day for brunch. This time it was just plain terrible. Our server failed to bring us silverware even after asked multiple times. Finally, we had to get it from another server. We never had refills on drinks and only at the end of the meal did he come by and actually be nice just to jack his tip. Food is always great, but the new layout on the hot food is terrible. It is a circle and no one knew where to enter and exit. Everyone complained and it felt like people just cutting into a line which never seemed to end. They also were out of food continuously. I finally gave up trying and we left.

  • what a shame
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 5/10/2014
    After two pleasant experiences last fall we finally returned--for what will be our last visit. My meal included a very small salad and without a doubt the worst burger I have had in Sioux Falls--a overcooked dry piece of meat called Hawaiian, on a bun topped with a piece of canned pineapple and thin deli ham, no sauce, no lettuce, no presentation, just the sandwich on a huge plate. My date's fish tacos were mushy. They were ordered as a lettuce wrap instead of burrito style but the two large romaine leaves were unedible--leaves I would discard from the outside of the romaine head. There are too many great places to eat in Sioux Falls to waste my dining budget at Braccos. On a positive note the wine was quite good.

    The food was great, as it always is when I go to Braccos. Our waitress really struggled and got several things wrong, such as my drink order. I could tell she was new so I was understanding but I don't think she should have been out on her own on a Friday night. She wasn't ready for it.

    Quite often, my first choice because of the food, service and energy of the crowd. I think it's the best patio area to enjoy in our warm weather months. The brunch is always my first choice because if the selection of food and how they keep up with the freshness of the product. It's always hot!

    I wanted a truly romantic dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. Being that it was a Friday night (which is a very busy restaurant night in Sioux Falls) and we needed to catch a Tonic Sol-Fa show, I wanted to be able to make reservations. Bracco was able to accommodate all of this. I even requested a more secluded table so that we could visit and they set us up with an absolutely perfect table. Our server, Garresson, was always attentive to our needs and other servers and hosts checked on us throughout the meal. The food was excellent. The meat was tender and everything came out hot. The price is comparable to other sit-down restaurants in Sioux Falls, but the food and service makes Bracco the best value in town hands down!

    It is apparent that Bracco cares about your dining experience. The restaurant is clean, the staff well trained, and the ambiance is nice. But, the food was good (not outstanding) and I was rather disappointed in the portion/value. I ordered their famous fish tacos, and, given the price and setting, I was underwhelmed by what was placed before me. The same can be said for their side salad - small and disinteresting. But, my wife's Pad-Thai looked awesome.

    I took my mother and nieces for lunch and we sat on the patio. Even with construction taking place on Western it did not take away from the beautiful patio. The service was excellent! The server was knowledgable, polite, and very well paced. We were not rushed but had plenty of time to enjoy our lunch. My nieces said that the next time they are in Sioux Falls they want to go back to Bracco's.
